Jimmie's Top 250 Ambients

This is the Wracklineblog's "Music with Depth of Feeling" List.   (The latest count is actually almost 350 ambients!)
In keeping with the author's preference for quiet, these are all low-key but inspiring selections from "New Age Music" albums.

In general, these selections will have the following traits:

It's music that has "pathos", emotion, depth of feeling.

It engages the creative spirit. It'll put you in the Zone. Most selections would be great background music while you are writing, composing, or just savoring Life.

Some of it might even be a bit melancholic.

It is not "drone".

It ain't "easy listening"

Nobody sings (with a couple exceptions); they're all instrumental

It doesn't have unchanging repetitive loops.

It won't "degenerate" into rock or "light" rock.

Naturally, each of us has a unique take on what constitutes "Top Tunes", so try one or two. Give 'em a chance. Often a person doesn't develop a liking to a track until after listening the second or third time. Also, something that is experienced as quiet and pleasing at home may be irritating when heard in a noisy car.

The author has bought many CDs and MP3 albums based on a pretty selection played on Pandora, or (in the 80s/90s) on a radio station called "Musical Starstreams", only to find that the rest of the selections on the album were easy-listening, drone, atonal, or turned into rock. So you can use Jimmy's "Ambient top 250 list" to spare you from the same fate. If several selections are listed here, but not the entire album, it's because (in my opinion, at least) the rest of the tracks have too much "rock", or are "drone", or are just repetitive loops. On the other hand, if a whole-album link appears in addition to the tracks, it's because all - or at least enough - of the tracks met the criteria listed above for quiet, engaging music.

Want to hear some of this stuff on Pandora? Try these stations:

Rudy Adrian, Constance Demby, or Michael Stearns for synth-oriented music

Olafur Arnalds, Michael Whalen, or George Winston for mainly piano-oriented music.

To listen to or purchase one of the MP3s, or perhaps the whole album, just click one of the grey individual track links or one of the red whole album links. The individual MP3s are usually $0.99 each. Whole albums range from $5.99 to $9.99. Buying from these links will help yours truly maintain The Wrackline Blog as an AD-FREE web site!
"Why buy an MP3 song or album?" you ask. After all, there are streaming services like Spotify or Amazon Streaming. The answer is two fold:

If the service goes away, so do all your favorite songs. That's gradually happening to iTunes, which is all but forcing people to convert to a streaming mechanism.

A lot of this quiet stuff is not popular to the masses. So the streaming service may elect to remove your favorite soft, quiet (but relatively unpopular) tunes from their lists.

If you own all your MP3 albums, you can still listen to them 5 or 10 years in the future!
